Exhibition at the City Gallery, Charleston Sept 6 – Oct 5, 2014
CURATED BY DR. ADE OFUNNIYIN
This exhibition brought together a group of local Gullah artists; Hampton R. Olfus, Jr., James Denmark, Winston Kennedy, Arianne King-Comer, and Addelle Sanders. Dr. Ofunniyin states that the artworks featured in the Convergence and Reclamation exhibition "intend to convey imagery connected to a transatlantic reclamation of Africa as source for renewal, inspiration and creative influences that can be utilized to propel, sustain, and add new meaning and/or significant cultural nuances to the visual imageries guiding our understanding of each other and the world, making life more meaningful for us all. The exhibit promises to cool and refresh the piece of earth that we tread upon and call Charleston.”
